HELP ME PLEASE . vst sound library NOT FOUND

Hi, can someone please help me, I keep getting this message VST SOUND LIBRARY NOT FOUND. and I noticed a lot of missing vst sounds missing in my project How can I recover my missing files

On this one I’d contact Steinberg: – and go into Chat
Call – You can reach us at 844-358-4022 Monday through Friday 9 am - 7:30 pm EST. Let them take control of your computer.

If you call you can have them take control of your computer and fix whatever the issue is. I had this problem too and they took control and were able to within 5 minutes (watch what they do and ask while on phone any questions) get things nice and ready to go. Number of issues could be issue including demo stuff…

If you can see a VST library in Library Manager and you have an active license on e-licenser but can’t load it, this worked for me with Groove Agent 5 and Songwriter Essentials expansion pack (just one VST library was missing - all others had installed without the need for this disabling of the firewall - I had tried everything else I could find on the internet). I ran into this issue after a fresh install on a new PC.


  1. Uninstall VST library from Steinberg Library Manager
  2. Uninstall VST library from PC using Add/Remove Programs
  3. Disable all firewall/virus protection
  4. DL/Unzip/Install library in default folder
  5. Re-enable firewall/virus protection

Of course also get all the updates and let e-licenser do what it does.

The VST library Songwriter Essentials consists of two files, but only one was showing up (and in a directory different from the others). Firewall was blocking one of the files even when I moved it manually, etc.
